  1. One of my developers could build something im sure, but im not sure if it would come in under budget or not
  2. Just took a look. The pricing isn't exactly transparent but from what I can make out it seems quite a bit more expensive than some of the other options
  3. Thanks for the advice. Looked at all these options and iauditor seems the best of a bunch. None of them are particularly cheap though. Got a meeting with my client Monday to try and sell this to them.
  4. echo has developed a rear handle version of its highly successful CS-2511TES top handle chainsaw. The result, the CS-2511WES, is ‘an exceptional chainsaw which will suit professionals across all sectors,’ say echo. There’s even a version designed specifically for carvers. The CS-2511WES is part of echo’s X Series range. echo says: “these ‘best in class’ products are industry-leading in terms of performance and features. They are designed for professionals who rely on their tools day-in day-out. This is where the chainsaw excels.” Weighing just 2.6kg (dry weight) and producing 1.10kW of power, it has the best power-to-weight ratio in its class. This makes it both highly manoeuvrable and usable for long periods without fatigue. It is ideal for trimming, pruning, small logging and wood carving. “Every echo product is designed around the needs of the end-user,” say echo, “the CS-2511WES is no exception.” It features a palm rest for precise control, a tool-less air filter cover to allow easy access to the air filter, even when wearing gloves, and tool-less access to fuel and oil tanks. There’s a side access chain tensioner for easy chain adjustment and an anti-icing system to prevent the carburettor from freezing in colder months. Easy Start, echo’s patented system, ensures effortless starting, while the oiler adjustment on the top of the chainsaw gives the operator control of the oil flow for optimum operation. Designed and manufactured in Japan, the CS-2511WES is powered by a 25.0cc professional-grade, Stage 2 low emissions compliant echo engine. It comes with a 0.050” gauge, 30cm (12”) cutting bar. For carvers, the CS-2511WESC has a 0.043” gauge, 25cm (10”) carving bar and chain. Both chainsaws come with a two-year professional or five-year domestic warranty. You can find out more from your local authorised echo dealer. You can also visit www.echo-tools.co.uk or call 01844 278800 for more information.
  5. Just look at any tree surgery website that’s used stock images, you’ll see plenty of issues 😁
  6. Thanks for sharing. Never even heard of it. Any idea if it’s significance?
  7. Its not!!!??? dammit, there goes my over-inflated self esteem
  8. Always struggled to fill your little pocket of the country for some reason. Reckon people list be too wealthy 😂
  9. I can only apologise on behalf of the member in question and thankfully he doesn’t represent the majority of members here. Probably drunk more than he can handle
  10. I did start a topic a while ago but can't find it, so.... I was considering getting a fireplace in my new office but think I am now leaning towards an oil filled radiator. Really not sure what size I should get though. 2500kw means zilch to me. Its going to be a small room, approx 3.8m x 2.5m. 3rd of a wooden cladded garage. It will be insulated but utlimately is still going to be an outdoors office. I don't want to boil in there and am quite happy to be cold, just so long as I can feel my fingers to type. What power would you recommend? Looking at something like this Amazon.co.uk: oil fired radiators AMZN.TO Amazon.co.uk: oil fired radiators
  11. Instead of paying vat? Doesn’t sound the worst deal in the world depending on the vat amount
  12. Adding to its range of high-performance tools for professionals, STIHL has launched the new MS 400 C-M, the world’s first chainsaw with a magnesium piston. The MS 400 C-M chainsaw was been designed with professionals in mind, offering the highest maximum speed (14,000 rpm) in the 60cm3 -class. The new 66.8cc 2-MIX engine has more displacement, providing both more power and torque than the MS 362C-M, as well as rapid acceleration. As a world first, the MS 400 C-M features a new magnesium piston. This lightweight and durable piston weighs just 70g, which is 14% lighter than the aluminium piston in the MS 362 C-M, helping contribute to the machine’s excellent power to weight ratio and highest maximum revs in its class. Thanks to these new intelligent design features and materials used, the MS 400 C-M has an impressive power-to-weight ratio of 1.45 kilograms per kilowatt, making it ideal to use when working in the forest, especially over prolonged periods. In addition to the new 66.8cc engine, the MS 400 C-M features STIHL’s unique M-Tronic 3.0 technology including the new calibration process and an improved HD2 filter, which help deliver optimum performance at all times. The chainsaw also features ElastoStart technology that enables effortless starting of the power tool. Designed for forestry and arb professionals, the MS 400 C-M can be used for a range of applications, including felling, de-limbing and cutting to size. Starting from £900 ex VAT, the MS 400 C-M is available in 16”, 18” and 20” versions, the latter 20” version with an ES light guidebar. For more information on STIHL’s range of chainsaws, please visit www.stihl.co.uk.

  14. Feel for you. I went through this same dilemna recently as you probably know, and its never easy to break away. Some good advice so far though here
  15. Full security passes for all staff with crb checks and Referance checks but had these in place from previous works luckily as would never have got these processed between knowing about this job and the date it had to be done by. I mean permission to take photos on site. Every military base I have ever been on has always had a strict policy, no photos
  16. Nationwide and it’s an age old problem I’m afraid. It’s not going to change
  17. You wouldn't believe the paperwork involved in this site being behind the wire on a military camp so planning permission was the least of our worries. And photo permissions? 🤔
  18. May be of interest to people following this thread https://arbtalk.co.uk/news.html/engcon-invites-visitors-to-second-big-dig-day-of-the-year-r110/
  19. I'd really like a single solution for this client. Remind me the link to your software though please? This is not for a tree surgery company by the way.
